Top 40 Greatest Music Albums by yeabefekade (2014)

« View previous chartView next chart »

I have so many more albums and artists that I need to add to this list but that's enough for now. I'm only 15 so I haven't listened to as much music as people older than me. I still need to listen to so much more. Sorry for all the post punk :/ I would love to hear some suggestions to what I should listen to based on my taste :)

FuneralCanada Arcade Fire
I have never heard an album that had so much passion, emotion, and excitement. I haven't gotten tired of listening to this album even after listening to it over and over again. As with every Arcade Fire album the emotion is cathartic, unrelenting, and undeniably contagious. Being only 15, this is my coming of age album.

London CallingUnited Kingdom The Clash
This album is perfection. It contains some of my favorite lyrics ever and I love the mix of genres from ska, punk, reggae, and jazz. The catchiness and accessibility of this album automatically drew me to it.

The Queen Is DeadUnited Kingdom The Smiths
This is The Smiths at their prime. Great songwriting, great vocal delivery, and great guitar playing. The lyrics alone are enough to satisfy anyone.

The SuburbsCanada Arcade Fire
This is the most relatable album I've ever heard. Being from the suburbs I can relate to every song on this album. I love how all the songs seem to bounce off each other. This is an expertly crafted album. I'm so happy it won album of the year at the Grammy's.

LonerismAustralia Tame Impala
This is such an accessible psychedelic album. You don't have to be a stoner to love this album. I've never heard psychedelic music this colorful and bright. This album makes me want to dig deeper into the genre.

DisintegrationUnited Kingdom The Cure
One of the darkest albums you'll ever hear both lyrically and especially musically. Although The Cure can write more upbeat pop songs, I prefer them as the dark post-punk band.

Power, Corruption And LiesUnited Kingdom New Order
I had trouble picking which New Order album is the best. It was either Low-Life, Brotherhood, or this one. I ended up picking this one since I feel like this is the true New Order sound.
